Spectrum Rebooted – Taking Stock

Staff Writer

The date has been set for the  Radcomms Conference by AMCA. An annual event since 07, this year’s conference theme is Radcomms2014 is Spectrum Rebooted – Taking Stock

It is set to see the largest line-up of international and local speakers ever assembled.

Of interest to our industry will be Minister for Communications, Malcolm Turnbull's keynote speech. This will be the first time we will get to hear the government’s thoughts about the future of the spectrum management in Australia.


"Historically, spectrum utilisation has flown a little below the radar of national consciousness, but this is changing. As new pressures emerge, there’s a growing realisation that spectrum is a key driver of growth, innovation and productivity in our economy and that’s why it’s time to take stock,’"said ACMA Chairman, Chris Chapman.

The Radcomms2014 sessions will assist in shaping the future of spectrum management in Australia and will look at, amongst others:

How does the changing regulatory landscape affect how we manage and license radio communications in the future?

What are the current reform initiatives for radio communications regulation and how can they encourage technology evolution and improve competition?

“The challenges for how we manage the spectrum resource into the future are on our door step. Our international colleagues have already experienced some of these challenges first hand.  I am delighted that we will therefore have the opportunity to learn from their experiences and perspectives at RadComms2014.”, said Chris Chapman

“This conference provides an opportunity for all of our stakeholders to take stock of current and emerging challenges, size each of them up accordingly, and influence the way that these challenges may be addressed,” Mr Chapman added.

RadComms2014 will be held in Sydney 10-11 September this year at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Find out more details on the conference and ticketing at the ACMA website.
